easy peasy




Every year at Christmas time I make some kind of bark to have on hand to give out as gifts.
Bark usually is a sweet treat (chocolate), so I don't put too much in the little bags...just enough for a nice treat. My favourite part of making bark is packing them up in pretty cellophane bags with ribbons and homemade tags.
In the past I have done almond bark and peppermint bark and this year I tried a white chocolate, apricot-cranberry-walnut bark...yum!
I always melt my chocolate in a glass bowl placed above a pot of boiling water. Make sure the water does not touch the bowl. Melting your chocolate this way allows for a slow even melt, so the chocolate doesn't burn.
